Reviews

“This book should be read by all healthcare professionals, as well as healthcare system administrators and executives. Physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, dietitians, occupational therapists, medical assistants, and medical technologists of all disciplines will be better informed clinicians by reviewing the chapters in this volume. Executive directors, chief executive officers, chief operating officers, department managers, and program directors will find useful guidance here for fostering equitability in the systems for which they are responsible.” (Patrick L. Kerr, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (12), March, 2017)

“Recognizing stigma exists in the care of patients with mental health issues is not the only step in addressing it. This book identifies particularly vulnerable populations of mental health patients and discusses the bias they often face in healthcare settings and in their relationships with healthcare workers. … This is a valuable read for any healthcare professional and would prove useful for trainees as well.” (Steven T. Herron, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
